Finally the granddaddy of them all, the original 1933 masterpiece King Kong, is hitting Blu-ray high definition next week, September 28th, and we've got a look at not only the cover art but three clips from the disc's bonus features! Start beating those drums!
I'll never forget that fateful morning driving westbound on the I-134 and rounding the bend to see Universal Studios in flames. The pillars of smoke rose high enough to blot out the sun, and all of us were left with an unbearable sadness as miles of backlot - including Hill Valley, the King Kong exhibit, and vaults of archival material - perished in that godawful fire. Thankfully, Universal and Peter Jackson have made the best of a bad situation, and we now have a brand-new Kong attraction.
Lots of theme park goers will be spending the Fourth of July weekend at Universal Studios Hollywood to take part in what will no doubt be an historical afternoon as the biggest gorilla of them all takes up residence in his new stomping grounds.
As an unabashed lover of Peter Jackson's King Kong remake, today's news has me all kinds of giddy! There have been lots of rumblings of a new Universal Studios attraction involving the Eighth Wonder of the World, and now you can hear all about it from the director himself!

Hearts of fans everywhere were broken when the King Kong attraction burned down at Universal Studios LA a couple of years ago. But you can't keep a good ape down. Especially one so pissed off and huge! We're happy to announce that Kong is now back, and bigger and badder than ever!
Earlier this morning Dread Central was invited to a very preliminary sneak peek at the upcoming King Kong attraction that will be integrated into the backlot tour at Universal Studios Hollywood Theme Park this summer.
Universal promises -- He’s never been this real. “Kong, The Eighth Wonder of the World” is set to rise from the ashes to astound studio tour guests this summer as the King Kong 360 3D Attraction is coming to Universal Studios, and we've got the first details!
A few months ago we told you about King Kong coming back to Universal Hollywood (the original ride burned down in a fire) as a 4D attraction. Now that the first promotional trailer for the ride has gone live, our curiosity and our interest have hit a fever pitch.
The June 2008 backlot fire at Universal Studios was tragic on several levels but none more so than the loss of the great King Kong ride that was a staple of the theme park. Gone for good was the giant animatronic monkey and his banana-scented breath. It left quite a void. Thankfully said void is about to be filled.
Every now and again a short film will catch our eye, and we just can't help but want to spread the word about it. Like giant monsters brawling? Fans of King Kong and Jurassic Park? Then you need to sit back and enjoy StopMo!
Throughout history there have been tales, legends, what-have-you about beautiful women and their effect on creatures considered unworthy or dangerous or abominations.
